The issue is that your app is compiled against gtk# 2.10, where the
windows installer comes with gtk# 2.8.  (The win32 installer will
probably upgraded to 2.10 for the next release).

A solution needs to be found to easily compile against older gtk#
versions to enable running on different/older systems.  Until that
happens, this will be a common problem for people deploying gtk# apps
without recompiling.  Mike Kestner talked about having "sdk" installs
for older gtk# versions to make this possible.

The Mac installation doesn't come with gtk#.  There are some tutorials
out there on getting it installed, but it's quite the endeavor compared
to a simple install.
